On this day in sports: Broncos draft Tim Tebow

Florida quarterback Tim Tebow was taken in the first round (25th overall) of the 2010 NFL draft by the Denver Broncos.

DENVER — Remember 'Tebow Mania'? Of course, everyone does.

That phenomenon began on this day (April 22) 10 years ago when the Denver Broncos selected Florida quarterback Tim Tebow in the first round (25th overall) of the 2010 NFL draft.

The Broncos actually had two first-round picks in that draft, and selected Demaryius Thomas three picks earlier at 22nd overall.

Tebow and Thomas would link up for one of the most iconic playoff moments in Broncos history when they connected for an 80-yard game-winning touchdown in overtime in the 2012 playoffs.
